The Committee at San Pietro in Campo have outdone themselves once again this year with the Festa della Trebbiatura 2017.
This morning was the tractor parade through the streets of Barga (article here)
This afternoon it was the turn of San Pietro in Camp to show what they could do with their long running Festa della Trebbiatura
What started out as a small festa in the village to celebrate using the old machinery and tractors to thresh the grain and prepare bales of straw has in the space of just seven years blossomed into a full blown festival of the old traditions once used in this area with everything from bread making, grain preparing and even to roasting grain to make “coffee”.
This afternoon was also a tug or war between men, women and at one point between men women and a tractor.
The real crowd puller was once again the magnificent tractors and agricultural machinery on display including the Landini vintage tractor which powered the threshing machine.
